Man vs Mountain

Man vs Mountain

Firstly, apologies to those squeamish amongst you.

This was a snap-shot of Cody’s battle-wounds from quite a humbling (for me at least) mountain biking day at the You Yangs MTB park just outside of Melbourne. I have a matching set above my right knee and hip, as well as a sprained left little finger and other scratches.

You Yangs is quite rocky and challenging, more of a downhill experience rather than a cross-country one. I think only one of our 6-strong group didn’t have a significant ‘off’, although not all resulted in leakage.

Levels, USM, Vignetted, Curves.

You clicked the ‘+’! Well done you!

I’ve been wondering if anyone ever clicked that thing, now I know – thanks!
